I realized the other day that February 17, 2007 was the very first post on Hysterical Raisins. Those were the pre-Photoshop days of The Raisin, and the MS Paint image is embarrassing when I look at it today. So, kids, in honor of The Raisin’s 13th birthday (its blog mitzvah!), I thought I would recreate and update the very first poster. I couldn’t find the same image, but I did find the cover of the DVD box.

Thirteen years ago, we were so young and innocent. We thought the Supreme Court-appointed Chimpy Bush and Deadeye Dick Cheney meant the end of our democracy. Little did we anticipate the sheer horror the Twitler era would unleash.
Instead of wallowing in our despair, sit down, have a bowl of matzoh ball soup and a glass of Manischewitz wine, and let’s celebrate a little before we buckle down and do the hard work of getting rid of the Grifter-in-Chief and all his minions.
